Earth Sangha Open House and Plant Sale (Sunday)

  • 09/24/2017
  • 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
  • Springfield, VA

The Open House & Plant Sale is located at Earth Sangha's Wild Plant Nursery.  This nursery is a unique resource for ecological restoration in the greater Washington, DC, area. Established in 2001 in Springfield, Virginia, under an agreement with the Fairfax County Park Authority, the nursery is the region's most comprehensive source of local, wild native-plant material (“local ecotypes”). The use of local ecotypes is a standard best practice in ecological restoration because that helps to safeguard genetic diversity and local adaptation in the species planted. 

Location:  6100 Cloud Drive, Franconia Park, Springfield VA

Access is from Franconia Road (644). From Franconia, turn north on Thomas Drive. (There is a traffic light at Thomas and Franconia. Thomas is less than half a mile east of the 395/95 intersection.) From Thomas Drive, turn right onto Meriwether Lane. Turn left onto Cloud Drive. There is a park entrance at the end of Cloud. Please park in the parking lot at the bottom of the entrance road, then walk down the gravel road along the community gardens. Our nursery lies beyond the community gardens.
